Duck egg blue handmade glass swirled with beachy shades
Part of my Coast collection of jewellery, this lampwork glass necklace is made from the most beautiful shade duck egg blue glass swirled with soft beachy colours and silvered ivory. I give it a couple of twists on each side of the glass to create pretty coastal patterns like crashing waves which are unique to each necklace. The glass is etched to a smooth, pebble like matt finish and framed with sterling silver discs. Hung from your choice of sterling silver chain.
Approximate bead size 25 mm wide.
Contemporary lampwork glass jewellery by glass artist and designer Carolyn Grant.
Handmade in my home studio in Cheshire, England, I create sterling silver earrings, necklaces and bracelets using my own handcrafted lampwork glass beads. Formed in a hot flame using a propane and oxygen powered torch, each lampwork bead is individually handmade and unique. My lampwork glass forms the focal part of my jewellery designs, each one a tiny little work of art. There is something hypnotic about working with hot glass, manipulating it in the flame and using a combination of heat and gravity to control the flow and create something beautiful. I learn something new every time I fire up my torch, and hope that my fascination with glass translates into my jewellery.
